Lots of changes at Sustainable Fairfax!
An Opportunity to Renew, Recreate, Re-envision…
Sustainable Fairfax hums along through the generosity of time and commitment from many.
Elizabeth Baker has been a backbone of the organization from its earliest days. For the last 8 years, Elizabeth has served as President of the Board and to our great sadness, has decided it’s time to focus on other projects and will be stepping down as President this summer. We are delighted that Elizabeth will remain on the board. Elizabeth will continue to oversee the Free Community Seed Exchange and help organize homesteading workshops, Fairfax on Foot hikes and the Sustainable Film & Lecture series.
Renee Goddard is one of the earliest leaders and to this day, continues to bring new ideas for how we come together with an unfailing commitment to sustainability and community. She was a main driver in the successful campaign to ban single-use plastic bags and created a new town event, Streets for People. Her vision for safe alternative transportation as well as zero waste education and implementation have contributed to our town’s identity as a leader in tackling climate change. Renee is just a wee bit busy as our Mayor in this time of Covid-19. While Renee will remain on the Board as an advisor, she is stepping down as the Vice President. We look forward to her continued vision and guidance for the organization.
We are grateful to these two women and are pleased that they both will continue to be involved.
NEXT STEPS! Sustainable Fairfax is ready to emerge with a new purpose that continues to nurture our families and community and protects our ecosystem. We need your ideas, leadership skills, and fresh perspective to refocus our efforts and create new programs, platforms and projects that meet the demands of these challenging times. Join us to work together AND bring your vision and people power..
